    Viewing your T1, T2 & T3 Time Splits:



    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Replay' , not the 'Save Ghost Replay'

    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay Theater' option.
    • While Viewing Your Replay, Choose the "Live Timing Monitor" To View Your Sector Times
    • To post your T1, T2 and T3 Splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    Well, nevermind the GSX, I'll be here.
    3 laps is awesome. :D
    Hopefully not to frustrating though. :scared:

    Like the weird tire combo too.

    Now, after running 3 batches of 3 laps, this is a hell of a lot of fun! The time is dropping off quickly.

    Update, ran another 6 batches of 3 laps, new times are as follows.

    T1 0'15'354
    T2 0'17'476
    T3 0'10'425

    I can't wait to get home from work and play this.
    For some reason this week while running at Suzuka all that I could think about was 'I hope there some week coming up we get to race Autumn Ring Mini.'
    Thank you EDK!:lol:
    I can't believe it's here.:D
    Love this track, although 3 laps could cause quite the headache.:ouch:
    It will definitely be fun though!

    @dhandes - quick, look, you are number 1 on the split leaderboard so far.;):lol:

    Yay, this is going to be fun!

    T1 15.203
    T2 17.824
    T3 10.466

    The challenge this week is consistency, something which I definitely do not have, as the other two laps from that set were somewhat slower. Still, the only way is up!

    Definitely see some places to make up a little time.
    Had a little screw up on lap 3 that took me off my line.
    Consistency is going to be a killer.

    T1: 15.170
    T2: 17.562
    T3: 10.337

    ----------

    Had another oops on lap 2 that cost me me a few tenths.
    Hopefully I can make it up since there is still plenty of time.
    Consistency is not fun with the DS3.

    T1: 14.957
    T2: 17.377
    T3: 10.198

    I'm just waiting for a Yo Dawg meme.

    This looks fun, bit less power is nice and should be plenty of grip with SS on the fronts.

    Looking forward to try this one tonight.
    Seems like a nice challenge with the two tyre types. :tup:
    I feel I can't go any faster on Suzuka anyway :grumpy:

    just had a few laps and i think the combo is great fun
    T1: 14:945
    T2: 17.577
    T3: 10.540

    not really sure what line to take in t2, but a few more laps should sort that out

    Ive decided to skip week 20 because I was getting nowhere fast and focussed on this challenge.
    Consistency is not my best feature.

    After my G27 peddles decided to give up on me early during week 19, I had to wait for some money to arrive before I could buy a new G27. Not enough time to complete week 20, but I'm back for this one. :tup:

    Welcome back Kevin. I hope you enjoyed your vacation.

    Edit: After only 10min on this combo & with a best lap time of 42.871 here are my 1st lot of splits.

    T1: 15.277
    T2: 17.461
    T3: 10.133

    What great fun this combo is, taking this car to the edge and dancing with it is a blast. I usally run the go-kart on this track but this buzz bomb is a bigger rush, just keep it on the pipe tracking through the turns and the times fall. :)

    My revised splits,

    T1, 0:15.061
    T2, 0:17.608
    T3, 0:10.369

    Hard to string 3 fast laps together, I'll have my fastest lap yet in lap 1 or 2 then blow it on lap 3 trying to push to hard.:banghead:
